Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Colorado House Democrats Call for Immediate, Clean Funding of DHS
Today, Representatives Diana DeGette (CO-01), Ed Perlmutter (CO-07), and Jared Polis (CO-02) made the following statement calling for an immediate vote in the House on a clean bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS):  “For months now we have heard Republican leaders promise there would be no DHS shutdown on their watch and that we cannot play games with our national security. Yet today we are a mere 48 hours away from the brink of a security crisis that has been manufactured by the Republican leadership’s inability to stand up to the extremists in their party. “The security of our nation is not a political pawn. The men and women who put their lives on the line every day to protect our skies, secure our borders, and fight terrorism should never have to worry about if or when they will get their next pay check. In Colorado, this GOP crisis is putting at risk more than $49 million in DHS funding which helps us prepare for, prevent, and recover from disaster
Polis Hosts Telephone Town Hall on Middle-Class Economics
More than 3,000 Coloradans participated in a telephone town hall hosted by Representative Jared Polis (D-CO) on Tuesday night. The town hall focused on issues important to the middle class and featured Christopher Lu, Deputy Secretary of Labor, and Jeff Zients, Director of the National Economic Council and Assistant to the President for Economic Policy. During the town hall, which lasted roughly an hour, Representative Polis, Director Zients, and Deputy Secretary Lu fielded an array of questions from constituents throughout the district. Topics covered included education, infrastructure, trade, and small business policy. “The Congressman has been a very strong champion for his district,” Zients said. “Together, we’ve been working to advance policies that create opportunities for the middle class – from making college more affordable to ensuring a fair working environment with good jobs and good wages, to helping entrepreneurs and small businesses create jobs.”
Polis, Ruiz Introduce Bill to Improve Wildfire Disaster Relief and Prevention
  Today, Representative Jared Polis (D-CO) and Dr. Raul Ruiz (D-CA) announced the introduction of the Wildfire Prevention Act of 2015, a bipartisan bill that would update the Federal Emergency Management Administration’s (FEMA) guidelines for releasing disaster relief funds to ensure that victims of wildfires have access to the same resources as victims of other natural disasters. “As a Representative, nothing frustrates me more than when I tour the aftermath of a wildfire, see the ruins of houses in communities near Fort Collins and Boulder, and then find out that the federal government has refused to provide disaster relief because of a technicality,” said Rep. Polis. “This bill will ensure that those people or communities that have been devastated by wildfires will have access to the resources and relief that every other natural disaster victim can receive to rebuild their homes, towns, and lives.” “As the drought in California continues, our forestlands and surr
Polis, Issa Urge Congress to Protect U.S. Digital Economy as Part of Trade Legislation
Representatives Jared Polis (CO-02) and Darrell Issa (CA-49) today sent a letter to the leaders of the House Ways & Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee urging them to protect U.S. businesses that rely on the Internet as part of any upcoming Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation. “Many countries around the world are pursuing what has been called ‘digital protectionism’ restrictions targeted at U.S. Internet and digitally-intensive businesses in order to protect local industries from new competition or keep data away from U.S. companies or shores, often under the sympathetic guise of enforcing intellectual property rights,” the representatives wrote. “In light of this disturbing trend, our trade agreements must stand firmly in support of an open, vibrant Internet.” Polis and Issa referenced recently enacted laws in European nations prohibiting online platforms from publishing brief excerpts of others’ website content – even if those excerpts inclu
